Alle meine Entchen - German Children's Songs - Germany - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image


Alle meine Entchen schwimmen auf dem See,
schwimmen auf dem See,
Köpfchen in das Wasser,
Schwänzchen in die Höh.

Alle meine Täubchen
Sitzen auf dem Dach,
Sitzen auf dem Dach;
Klipper, klapper, klapp, klapp,
Fliegen übers Dach.

All my ducklings are swimming on the lake,
Swimming on the lake,
Their little heads dip into the water,
Their little tails stick out.

All my little doves,
Settle on the roof,
Settle on the roof,
Clipper, clapper, clap, clap,
Fly over the roof.

Notes

Here's an alternate translation of the 1st verse by Lisa in Australia:

All my ducklings
Swimming on the lake
Swimming on the lake
Heads in the water
Tails in the air (up high).

Below you can find an Italian translation of this song. You can watch a video of the Italian version here.

Italian Translation:

Le mie paperelle fanno il bagnetto
Le mie paperelle fanno il bagnato
Stanno dentro l'acqua col codino un su
Stanno dentro l'acqua col codino un su

Le mie paperelle nuotano nel laghetto
Le mie paperelle nuotano nel laghetto
Giocano nell'acqua sempre sempre più
Giocano nell'acqua sempre sempre più

Dopo il gran giocare, ora hanno fame
Dopo il gran giocare, ora hanno fame
pescano e pescano nel laghetto blu
pescano e pescano nel laghetto blu

Tutti son contenti con la pancia piena
Tutti son contenti con la pancia piena
Uno dopo l'altro, tornano a casa
Uno dopo l'altro, tornano a casa

Le mie paperelle insieme cantano
Le mie paperelle insieme cantano
Ora sotto l'ombra si riposano
Ora sotto l'ombra si riposano
